Steering in Emergencies

There are times when steering can be more effective than braking. For example, you come over a hill and find a truck stopped in the lane, or a child darts out from between parked cars and stops right in front of you. These problems can be avoided by braking—if you can stop in time.

If you cannot fully stop, follow these suggestions:

. Quickly apply the brakes to remove as much speed as possible from a collision.

. Steer around the problem, to the left to right depending on available space.

. Straighten the wheel once you have avoided the object.
